Sony showcases Spatial Reality Display 3D tech

Sony Corporation has unveiled the latest instalment of its brand campaign, A Sony Collaboration Series, with a visual 3D immersive experience that brings together RCA Records artist, songwriter and dancer Tate McRae with its innovative Spatial Reality Display.

The collaboration, produced by London-based agency Ralph, transports viewers into a whole new world of creativity and imagination with a unique and visually spectacular take on Tate’s hit song, “you broke me first.”

Sony’s Spatial Reality Display is a new product based on Sony’s award-winning Eye-Sensing Light Field Display technology. It follows the exact eye position of the viewer to create a highly-realistic virtual and 3D experience that is viewable to the naked eye, driving creators across a variety of industries to bring ideas to life in 3D displays. 

This collaboration steps inside the inner workings of Tate’s mind, following the story of her journey to becoming a chart-topping artist as it is illustrated through amazing visual 3D effects – powered by Unreal Engine. Sony’s ‘Spatial Reality Display’ lets viewers experience Tate’s “you broke me first”, with a choreographed dance routine Tate created specifically for the collaboration.

“Using Sony’s Spatial Reality Display to create a different look for my song was so cool and exciting,” says McRae. “The ability to transform myself into this 3D universe and showcase my dancing and song in a whole new way was just unthinkable and Sony helped me achieve the impossible. I mean come on, it’s a mini Tate!” 

“We are excited to celebrate the tremendous success Tate has had with her hit ‘you broke me first’ in an entirely new way with this collaboration,” said Tomokazu Tajima, Head of Brand Strategy Division, Sony Corporation. “A Sony Collaboration Series continues to follow our Purpose statement of filling the world with emotion through the power of creativity and technology, and this visual 3D immersive experience is an example of yet another way Sony technology can unleash creativity.”

The project is the fifth in the Sony Collaboration Series, a brand campaign produced by agency Ralph, that showcases all that the world of Sony has to offer through the power of creativity and technology. The multidisciplinary campaign consists of unique activations to produce stunning online content. This is part of an ongoing strategy to further highlight the ties between Sony Music artists and Sony assets including technology, gaming, film, and activating their passionate fan communities.

Sony launches immersive media experience with New York pop-up

Visitors to Sony’s ‘Lost In Music’ pop-up space in New York are being invited to create a personalised song as they move through the immersive experience.

Now in its third year, Lost In Music – produced by creative agency Ralph – unites Sony Music artists with Sony technology to produce creative, unique and shareable music experiences.

Through a weekly online show as well as the physical pop-up, Lost In Music showcases various innovative Sony technologies combined with exclusive interviews and performances from multiple Sony Music artists.

The groundbreaking Lost In Music experiential installation analyses the way each attendee moves and interacts with the cutting-edge technology throughout the space, combining it with the rhythm of their own heartbeat and adding musical components to create a unique, downloadable track.

Within the space, located at 201 Mulberry St. in New York City, visitors can get creative with:-

Heartbeat Chamber– This sets the BPM of the track by taking your heart rate.

Interactive Dancefloor Sequencer– You can dance over the LED floor to create a looping rhythm.

Drum Spheres– Hitting these will record drum loops based on your movements.

Vocal Booth– A microphone records, autotunes and loops your vocals.

Theremin– Your motion is captured and used to bend the pitch of your track.

– A camera on stage will record your movements. This is then combined with your finished track to create a shareable, personalized music video.

Also demonstrated at the Lost In Music pop-up is Sony’s latest multi-dimensional audio technology, which enables visitors to be entirely immersed in a track as it plays around them.

Additionally, guests will be able to get hands-on with the latest Sony products.

Finally, fans can tune in to the Ralph-produced ‘Lost in Music’ weekly online show to watch exclusive sets, interviews and tech highlights. Each episode of the show is available at www.sony.com/lostinmusic.

“It’s been tremendously exciting to work on this year’s Lost In Music campaign, which builds on previous years to really push the limits of what’s possible in terms of creating an immersive, interactive experience for music fans,” said Chris Hassell, Founder at Ralph Creative. “Combined with the live performances and complementary YouTube channel, Sony is able to connect with an extremely wide audience across multiple content and technology types.”

‘Trainspotting’ guide to Edinburgh created by Sony and 8MS

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has created The Alternative Guide to Edinburgh, ahead of the digital download of T2 Trainspotting.

Working with digital and content marketing company 8 Million Stories, The Alternative Guide to Edinburgh site takes users through key locations from the film, adapted to each of the key characters, including Renton, Begbie, Sick Boy and Spud.

The guide also contains bonus material and exclusive content, such as never-seen-before clips from the film and interviews with cast members.

“When it came to launching T2 Trainspotting, 8 Million Stories was the perfect fit,” said Neil Rodwell, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

“We’d been admirers of 8MS and its work with brands in the entertainment industry, and were excited to see what it could do for us – and weren’t disappointed. The T2 Trainspotting Alternative Guide to Edinburgh perfectly encapsulates the humour and mood of the film, and celebrates the legacy of Trainspotting.”

Robin Richmond, Managing Director at 8MS, said: “T2 Trainspotting has such a unique style of dark humour and a melancholic tone that fans are passionate about, and we were determined to convey the essence of the film within this project. Both the Trainspotting films are very close to our hearts and The Alternative Guide to Edinburgh was such a fun project for the team to be part of.”
